Post Traumatic Stress and Depression

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often coexists with depression. In fact, a third of returning veterans have depression that accompanies their PTSD. If you are struggling with profound sadness, isolation, irritability, sleep disruption, appetite changes, trouble concentrating and are tempted to self-medicate with substances, you may be experiencing PTSD co-existing with depression. Don’t accept the very first diagnosis you were given if it feels like something more complex is going on. The good news is that PTSD and depression (experienced as a result of trauma) respond very well to treatment. It is not hopeless. You are not weak or flawed. You deserve to feel good again.
